Trent Murphy out for the season with torn ACL and MCL

Report: Redskins' Trent Murphy to miss season with torn ACL

Per a report by National Football League insider Ian Rapoport, Murphy tore his ACL in Thursday's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens.

He will still serve his suspension this season, it will not carry over to 2018 when Murphy is healthy. He suffered the season-ending injury in the first quarter of Washington's 23-3 loss to Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium.

The bad news is Murphy is done for the year, costing the Redskins a valuable rotational presence who broke out for nine sacks and three forced fumbles last season.

Murphy was already slated to miss the first four games of the season after being suspended for violating the NFL's PEDs policy. Coaches have been pleased with how he's performed in practice.
